Bespoke Solar Management Solution for Contemporary Build
Contemporary glass architecture is not just the preserve of urban-living. A beautiful rural English property is making the most of its stunning countryside position with Phantom's automated screens.
Our customer's window company recommended Phantom Screens during the build-phase to help solve solar management and privacy needs. The recommendation was made at exactly the right stage in the build process, meaning our screens could be fully recessed to disappear from view when not in use. Their discreet nature ensures they do not impact on architectural design and allow maximum light to enter the space.
Initially, the property owners were looking for solid blinds but were unable to find them in the right sizes to span the large expanse of glass. They now have three 90% block Phantom screens and one black-out screen, enabling solar control, summer ventilation, day time privacy and insect protection.
The screens create an external mirror effect during the day meaning any onlookers are unable to view inside the property. The technical fabric also blocks 90% of the sun's rays, protecting occupants from glare and reducing sun-bleaching on internal fabrics and furnishings.
Automated Function with Light Sensors
The screens are connected to a light sensor that allows them to self-adjust depending on the time of year and on daily sunlight levels. When the sun reaches a certain level of brightness, the screens will automatically close, maintaining a consistent light level and helping to manage temperature gain. A wireless wall switch is fitted to the outside of the property that allows occupants to control the screens if they close while outside.
Three Executive Power Screens:
1 x 1.9m wide, 1 x 4.1 m wide and 1 x 1.7m wide all fitted with 75/10 solar mesh (10% open) and with RAL 7016 colour-matched drop bars.
One bespoke blackout blind 1.4m wide.
